Peterborough keen on Green

Posh director of football Barry Fry reveals interest in Daggers winger

Sought-after winger Danny Green looks set to leave Dagenham & Redbridge, with newly-promoted Peterborough United among the front runners for his signature.

The 22-year-old midfielder played 46 times in all competitions for Daggers last season and was the club’s top-scorer with 13 goals.

Despite Daggers relegation, Green’s performances have not gone unnoticed and his admirers range from Premier League new-boys Norwich City to League Two debutants Crawley Town.

However, Peterborough director of football Barry Fry revealed this week that his club have held talks with Daggers and are confident of tying up a deal soon.

“Danny is one of three midfielders our manager has shown an interest in,” said Fry. “We don’t want all three, but we have lodged bids for the other two which have been turned down for now.

“We face a lot of competition for Danny as I know that Sheffield Wednesday and Crystal Palace are also after him, but our record of giving young players a chance in the first team will give us a good chance.
